Not sure why I was in a gloomy mood this morning. Must have been the subway ride. I am getting increasingly annoyed with having to sit, or mostly stand, in a crammed metal tube sliding through dark tunnels, reducing my air in-take to avoid intoxication from the ill-fragrant subway environment.
I got to work, took a look at the news for today. I was disappointed; more of the same. Hurricane evacuation efforts reminiscent of the movie "War of the Worlds," financial markets almost hysteric from confusion, political policy undeniably focused on patch-work, and unsuspecting people not sure what to brace themselves for. It reminded of why I love sci-fi movies and Japanese anime so much.
